Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Additional playback options
Even though it doesn’t have internet connectivity and the music streaming services that come with it, a flash drive or Bluetooth is a great, convenient way to replace internet radios for music playback.
Pro Low price
The solid basics coupled with the low price make it a receiver with a great value.
Pro Can support future copyrighted content
Has 4 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output which are HDCP 2.2 compliant to support future copyrighted content in full 4K resolution.
Con Achieving a great sound can be difficult
Doesn’t seem to be designed for newcomers because of its lack of automatic sound calibration. The user is expected to know what are the ingredients for a good sound and how to manually achieve them. It might take some effort before you can enjoy the sound on your system.
Con No network
Lack of network options means that there are no streaming applications specifically set up for music playback.
Con Uses an inferior method to connect speakers
For three of its speakers it uses spring clips which are an inferior way of connecting speakers to a receiver. With spring clips the wires are likely to have a tiny contact area which can result in poor performance. Binding posts are available for the two main speakers.
